I don’t shy away from bold lip colours but I can imagine how the new Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick will become a hot favourite among those who are slightly intimidated by highly-pigmented lipsticks. Retaining the creamy texture of its famous Revolution Lipsticks, Urban Decay’s new Sheer Revolution Lipsticks offers high-shine finish that are more sheer and less daunting to wear.

In ten shades that echoes the existing colours from the Revolution Lipstick line, the Sheer Revolution Lipsticks comes in a light purple reflective case that are gorgeous to look at (just make sure your fingers are clean when you handle them or you’ll be leaving obvious fingerprints).

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick Review

I love that the lipstick is very creamy, so it was very easy glide onto the lips, even when my lips are a little dry. Thanks to the high-shine texture and the inclusion of the Maxi-Lip technology, it also makes lips look fuller, and more luscious.

Another great thing about this product is that its creamy texture is hydrating (because of shea butter, jojoba, olive and babassu oils in the formula!), yet carries vivid colour, and doesn’t emphasise on lines that are formed due to dryness. What I also love about it is that it doesn’t leave behind any stain on the lips after the colours comes off when you wipe your mouth, eat or drink, for instances.

My favourite shade is the Sheer Ladyflower (the one on the most right in the first image in this article), which may look a little dark on the bullet, but is actually very close to natural lip colour. You should also try Sheer Shame and Sheer F-Bomb, if you’ve been wanting to experiment with a red or purple lipstick, but never plucked up the courage to.

The Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks retail at SGD33, and are available at Sephora.
